PM Modi Home State bans Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Padmaavat
The film, already cleared by the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) after five modifications and renamed from Padmavati to Padmavat and now titled Padmaavat, is scheduled to release on January 25 across India.
Yet, despite the Censor board's clearance, Padmaavat will not be screened in Gujarat, Rajasthan, and Himachal Pradesh. Here's a look at how state governments have reacted to the release of the film in different parts of the country.
According to producers, Padmaavat is the first Indian film that will have a global IMAX 3D release.
Other states, including Madhya Pradesh, Uttar Pradesh and Haryana, which had indicated that the film will not be allowed to be released in November - are yet to announce their final decisions.
However, he added on a cautious note, "In view of protests from certain quarters, we are keeping a close watch on the developments".
It seems the Censor Board is not done with enforcing reschedule of the release date and change of title for Deepika Padukone's upcoming magnum opus "Padmavati'". Later, Madhya Pradesh too declined to allow the film's screening.
The film has Deepika Padukone playing the lead role of Rani Padmini and also stars Ranveer Singh as Alauddin Khilji and Shahid Kapoor as Rawal Ratan Singh. When asked about the project's current status, PTI reported that Shahid said, "I am sure we will have clarity by the end of this year about when the film is releasing". A home department official has stated two days ago that there was no order to ban the proposed release of the film as yet.
The makers, Bhansali Productions and Viacom18 Motion Pictures, have said the film is based on 16th century Sufi poet Malik Muhammad Jayasi's epic poem "Padmavat". In a cryptic reply, he implied, "Jo kaha tha, woh hoga (What I said, will happen)". A Total of 70-80 crores will be less in lifetime collections if the ban from these states are not lifted and Padmaavat is made on the budget of 200 crores so it could use all the money in the world.
